Pre-race routine:

bending over the sprinklers in flower pots out front of Mile High Stadium, sitting in the shade, soaking my l/s tech shirt under the faucet
Event warmup:

hot enough already
  • 00m
  • 3.11 miles
  •  min/mile

women get a 3' headstart that the men can then give chase, hence SkirtChaser
i figured The Man would catch up to me no problem, but he didn't
instead I kept checking behind me when I heard some body that sounded like him
What would you do differently?:

not much I could do considering I probably narrowly avoided another bout of heat stress/exhaustion, felt good trucking by many people
figure it wasn't so bad if I was only a minute off my last 5k time in the early morning cool
Post race
Warm down:

water water water


What limited your ability to perform faster:

shoes melting to pavement, choking on others' ashes as they spontaneously combust, ears ringing with solar flares brushing past

Event comments:

good race, excuse to party with fit (or mostly fit) people
super awesome schwag, i won arm-covers from the giveaway booth, the pint glass, the food, and the man won a mini-towel
he got a headsweats visor & skirtchaser tee, I got a skirt
the platypus bottles at the finish were bonus, too
